One of my most popular posts is “How to Smoke Ribs on a Gas Grill“. That recipe uses baby back ribs and is not timed for St. Louis Cut Spare Ribs. So, I decided to do a post on how to smoke St. Louis Spare Ribs on a gas grill. This method is a twist on competition ribs and the end product is amazing. We start by smoking the ribs and then we wrap them to finish. They are a must try!
One of our favorite holiday meals is Beef Wellington. It gives you a great beef roast in a faster amount of time than a rib roast. Plus, it adds a nice little surprise for your holiday guests. To be honest, who doesn’t love the look of a perfectly cooked beef wellington just sitting on the table?! If you want to impress your guests this holiday season, this recipe is for you! Plus, it is super tasty.
During the holiday season I get a ton of emails. Lately I have gotten a few emails regarding suggestions for the best equipment and tools for Thanksgiving. Since it was such a popular topic, I decided to write up a post including all of the information for everyone to see. I hope you guys find it helpful.
Our good friends over at Thermoworks have released a new wireless thermometer called “Smoke“. The Smoke is a wireless thermometer that includes two probes. That way, you can wirelessly monitor both the pit and the food. As a barbecuer, this is important. The proper temperature is the difference between delicious bbq and charcoal. Plus, since this is all done wirelessly, you can do it while watching your favorite game or snoozing on the couch. We tested this thermometer while making a nice Honey Garlic Smoked Chicken. The chicken provided approximately 2 hours for us to test the thermometer and check its limits. The thermometer performed flawlessly and actually exceeded expectations. Check out our review below.
A couple of weeks ago, I visited New Orleans. While visiting New Orleans, I enjoyed all of the fabulous food and drinks that I could. I had everything from beignets to po-boys. However, my favorite treat was the Praline. It was sweet, nutty with a hint of caramel. They are freaking delicious! So as soon as I got home, I had to find a recipe to recreate these delicious treats. Of all of the recipes that we tried, this recipe created the most authentic tasting pralines.
I am a huge fan of the Thermapen. It is fast, accurate, durable and an extension of my arm in the kitchen. It is the one kitchen/bbq tool that I could not live without. I honestly don’t know how people can cook without checking temperatures. I have had my Thermapen for almost 5 years and it works as good today as it did the day I purchased it. The other day the great people over at Thermoworks sent me the newest Thermapen to try out. I was a bit skeptical that I would need a new Thermapen. However, The Thermapen Mk4 is not just an incremental update, it is a brand new kick butt thermometer. The new features make this not only a kick butt thermometer, but the best Thermapen ever! Check out my review below.
Today Thermoworks is releasing the new Thermapen Mk4. This is like Christmas over here at Savory Reviews. We love our Thermapen and Thermoworks products so much. Just like most people can’t wait for the new Apple products, we can’t wait for new Thermoworks products. The new Thermapen looks like the old thermapen, but has an auto-rotating screen, back-lit display and uses a common AAA battery. No more searching for 2032 batteries. We have AAA batteries everywhere. The Thermapen Mk4 is going to be the coolest tool in my BBQ arsenal. The best thing is that it is only $99. The classic superfast thermapens are still available and have dropped in price to $79. Check out our Full Review Here!
